Most of us miss childhood
And wish we could go back
To relive the days
Where simpler ways
Were what kept us on track.
Alas, there’s no way to go back,
For time moves in just one way.
It’s forward ho
With no way to slow
Down to enjoy the day,
And our memories are the only way
To hold on to what we know
And that which was good
From our childhood
As well as all the woe.
After all, the “good ol’ days” weren’t so
All the time, even when they were good,
So hang in there, Jack,
For while time can’t turn back,
Giving the future a chance you should.
